Nestled in the Ko’olau
Mountains along the windward coast of Oahu is the Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden.
It is in this lush paradise that the US Army Corps of Engineers constructed a flood
control dam in 1976 after several devastating water events. The resulting reservoir covers 32
acres and is capable of holding back 10 times the amount of water during
periods of flood. These images were
